Default My hair is overmopisturized :/

My hair, well the front parts of my hair is overmoisturized... it's stretched..when wet of dry and it won't snap/shrink back..it's as if it's been straightened..and i haven't been straightening my hair alot neither..so i know Im over doing the moisture thing... and I was wondering...

1) does this mean I have to cut my hair? can i save it? :/

2) what protein products can i use that are available at stores like krogers or walmart?

and 3) i've always wondered, does wearing your hair like this..make your hair stretch, should i avoid this style?

Thanks for all replies

Yeah.. I think you should try a protein treatment before going into drastic measures like cutting it. I don't really know any protein treatments but I've always heard about aphogee and stuff but it may be too strong. Have you tried iagirl's gelatin treatment? You could try that.

1) No, you don't have to cut your hair! Just add some protein to balance out the moisture. It's easier to correct over-moisturized hair than it is to correct over-proteinized (?) hair.

2) I'm loving All-Nutrient's Proteinizer. It's mostly keratin, and it sprays as a very fine mist so it's easy to control how much you put on. My hair loves protein, so it takes quite a lot of spraying. I've thought about actually opening it and pouring a little out! It smells really good, too.

I've also used Colorful Neutral Protein Filler. It's mostly keratin, too. It's available at Sally's and Amazon, and you can mix it with your gel, conditioner, etc. I don't notice any smell with it, either, so it should play well with your scented products.

Nature's Gate has conditioners with protein in them, too, and you should be able to find them in grocery stores.

Aubrey Organic's GBP conditioner is wonderful for at home protein deep treatments, too.

3) I can't see the photo for some reason, but you can pull out your curl/wave and make your hair more straight if you pull it back all the time. Some of us pull out the curl just by combing or raking our hair when it's wet! I'll leave it to the other curlies as far as whether it can affect your hair in other ways, though.
